Satisfy the Bush Fire Management Overlay and install a BMO / CFA compliant Water Tank.
When building in a Bushfire Overlay area there are strict guidelines on the installation of a Fire water tank. The size of the bushfire tank called up by local council is dependent on land size and what BAL (Bushfire Attack Level) level your property is assessed at. To determine your BAL level you will have to apply for a Bushfire Hazard Assessment and passed by your building surveyor.
The 10,000 litre round BMO / CFA tank is the most called up Bush Fire tank. The water stored in these tanks is water dedicated to fight bush fires.
Often local councils will require these tanks to be positioned in on your property for easy access by the fire truck.
Now days, you can choose a colour for your fire tank that will blend with your house or the environment. There are over 10 colours that are considered as standard colour. Accordingly, your 10,000 litre round BMO / CFA tank can blend with it’s environment and can be a subtle addition to your property.
